School Report Cards Out

New report cards are out--not for your kids, but for your kid's school.

The report lists all of the state's public schools listing the graduations rates, how qualified are the teachers, how safe are the schools, and how do the schools rate as far as technology advances.

The 2008 North Carolina School Report Cards can be found online, by clicking this link.

    My children tell me about how some classes can't even continue normally due to the disrupted behavior of some. I say send those home. If they can't behave, they don't belong in school.

    Ya'll need to leave Mr.T alone. Can't you see he is busy trying to balance the state budget.

    OK you heard the teachers, and I agree with them. You can not teach a "stump".

    I don't know what state you're living in, MrT, but being the principal's best friend could not and does not affect a teacher's salary in NC. Check out DPI's website at www.dpi.state.nc.us/docs/fbs/finance/salary/schedules/2008-09schedules.pdf for clarification. HEY, TREE BOY! LUV U

    No one ever said they wanted to be a teacher because of the money! Sure, it would be nice to make more money, but spend 1 day in my classroom and understand how I receive my form of payment. No, it’s not by having to spend MY own money for crayons, paper, or books (since both the district and parents don’t provide). It’s not by teaching table manners, standing in line, or please and thank-you. I don’t earn 29,000 to discipline a child because his parent decides not to. There is a little thing called the unwritten curriculum that nobody thinks about when they mention the success rate of a teacher. There is much that needs to be addressed before you can get to the mandated curriculum. So, to base a teachers salary upon the success rate of filling in the correct circle on a test, think about everything that teacher (and all the teachers in that child’s life to the point of the test) had to go through to get that child to be able to sit in a chair, open the test, and hold his pencil.

    Mr.T and the teachers all have a point. A compromise would be to have the court take children from neglectful parents and place them in group foster homes. Public funds for their support would then be taken from the parent and given to the foster homes.

    NC ranks 41st in the country in schools. Talk about pathetic.

    I think that the school report care are like the EOG's; nonsense. If the school keeps things hid then naturally they will have a good report card and this report card is the basis of the federal money that school will get. Take VFL for instance, last school year there was two seperate incidents of a gun being carried to the school, but was that told to the parents or the public? My child went to VFL and my child would have been in the 5th grade this year, but I chose to pull my child out and do homeschooling. Thank God I did because that is when I found out that my child was a grade level behind in three subjects so you see these report cards do not mean a hill of beans. It is time the parents and teachers work together to take the kids education rights back and the first thing that needs to be done there is the EOG's and then get rid of the school report cards. The public school system stinks and the parents are at fault too.

    MrT, nice idea! Few questions to think about...How are you going to factor in students that don't do well due to parent negligence? My kindergarteners can't get up, get ready, and drive themselves to school. Absences and student grades have a large correlation. What about the student that destroys my classroom, but their parents don't care? What about the student that speaks no English, but I am responsible for teaching them the whole curriculum? By the way, without the aide of an ESL teacher because the budget has been cut. It isn't all the teacher! We have to have help too!!! I love my job more than anything, but don't think it's all cut and dry!

    I disagree. Salary should not be based upon student grades...It is a teacher's job to motivate and inspire their student's to want to learn and to work at their personal best. Grades aren't always the most important thing.
